HOW WE DEFINE DIGITAL HEALTH

A fast-growing sector which is characterised by the use of digital technologies, either alone or in combination with physical products, to treat, diagnose, cure, mitigate and/or prevent disease or other conditions. Includes Health IT – but is not limited to it.

 

Digital Health is NOT just about collecting and sharing patient information.

 

The FDA defines digital health broadly as including:

♦ Mobile health (mHealth)

♦ Health information technology (HealthIT/e-health)

♦ Connected & wearable devices

♦ Telehealth and telemedicine

♦ Personalized and precision medicine
